The Invention of Lying… our Apple TV first

We got an Apple TV last week. It’s an amazing little device that fits in the palm of your hand and sits next to the TV as classy looking as any AV component. It has a variety of functions (and more when I can get the XBMC add-on running for it), but the core stuff ...

Truly mobile now

Anyone who’s read this before might just be wondering how on earth I’m happily blogging away while being at Nelson Bay, in a house I can proudly say has never had a phone connection (why pay month when it’s only occupied a few months a year in total?) And the answer of course is that ...
